2019 National Recycling Week at Collins Hume

From mobile musters to bin bag chic, Collins Hume are recycling with gusto!

When Collins Hume wanted to start a Green Team, they had the very good sense to ask Naomi and David.

Naomi Monk National Recycling WeekNow at the end of Planet Ark's National Recycling Week, one half of Collins Hume's Green Team, Naomi Monk, is asking what more can be done.

"We initiated National Recycling Week by collecting milk bottle and plastic bottle tops for Lids for Kids, as well as bread tags and soft plastics," says Naomi.

"Our team is collecting items at home and at work. I've already taken heaps of soft plastics to be recycled at the supermarket and will do our first drop off of milk bottle tops at the council next week."

Golfers tee off for Our Kids fundraiser

All had an absolute blast at the Our Kids Lismore Golf Day!

Combined with the recent Local Government Golf Day, over $20,000 has been raised to buy one of the two much-needed Resuscitaires.

Ray Lindwall, Dave Seymour and Peter Warren who helped host today for Our Kids and Anthony MagarryLismore Base and Ballina's Accident and Emergency are in need of one each... these two golf days bought one unit for Lismore.

A Resuscitaire is an intensive care open crib to resuscitate newborn and babies. It provides open access for the paediatric medical team while resuscitating the sick little one when they present at Accident and Emergency. It is a vital piece of equipment that is lifesaving for sick babies.

Thank you to all involved to help make this happen!

Kudos to Collins Hume's Lending Specialist David Seymour (centre), Ray Lindwall and Peter Warren who helped host the golf day for Our Kids and Anthony Magarry, who hosted the Local Government Golf Day. These two days have raised $20,000 and, being a purposeful business ourselves, we love your work!  Read more…

Our Kids Charity Golf Day 2019

It's that time of the year for the annual Our Kids Charity Golf Day

Last year the funds raised helped purchase a new Ultrasound Machine for the Women's Care Unit. 

Our Kids Charity Golf DayOver the past eleven years the Our Kids Charity Golf Days have been a great success and so far have been able to fund the purchase of over $165,000 worth of equipment for the Special Care Nursery.

This year's fundraising will help purchase a Giraffe Resuscitaire, an intensive care open crib to resuscitate newborn and babies. It provides open access for the paediatric medical team while resuscitating the sick little one. This equipment is to go in the ED at Lismore Base Hospital with an estimated cost of $19,200. 

This year, fundraising efforts will be combined with the Local Government Golf Day, run by Anthony McGarry from Lismore Workers Golf Club to make sure this equipment can be obtained as soon as possible.  Read more…

2019 Footy tipping results

We can call correct weight on the final results of the tipping comp 

I was expecting a Canberra-led High Court challenge on the Grand Final result, but it appears the result is final.

winnersAs we said at the start, rather than cash prizes this year our winners get the chance to make a difference and do some good by making donations to Buy 1 Give 1 (B1G1). Paid for by Collins Hume of course!

In the spirit of the Grand Final, I think it's fitting that we also donate another $50 for the tipper that finished 6th and 66th as 6 again seems to be a hot number in the NRL at the moment.

Congratulations to our winners:

  • brighton75 - First prize $300 worth of B1G1 Giving Impacts via B1G1
  • sstevol - Second prize $100 worth of B1G1 Giving impacts
  • Ronald1945 - Third prize $50 worth of B1G1 Giving impacts
  • RT88CH - Knockout Comp Winner $100 worth of B1G1 Giving impacts
  • Graeme D - 6th place $50 worth of B1G1 Giving impacts
  • Mightyeagles - 66th place $50 worth of B1G1 Giving impacts

Lastly – a huge thanks to the 110 brave souls who entered this year, another year of banter and fun!
